North Cove Yacht Club provides an engaging learning environment to promote the sport of sailing.  The objective of the Club's Junior Sailing Program is to teach sailing in a safe and structured environment to any interested youth.

In 2019, we held three two-week sessions. Please note that each session is ten days (except for Session 1 which excludes the July 4th Holiday) meeting from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm on weekdays.

  • Session 1: June 24 – July 5 (no class July 4th)

  • Session 2: July 8 – July 19

  • Session 3: July 22 – August 2

Youth ages 8 through 15 as of August 1, 2019 may apply for enrollment in one, two or all three sessions. Each session will provide instruction for both beginners and intermediate sailors.  In addition to instruction, those students recommended by the staff will be encouraged to sail in the Edward Godfrey Junior Sailing Racing Series on Monday evenings from about 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm through out the six week program.

2019 registration fees:

  • $595 per session for Non-Club member students

  • 20% discount per session for students related to NCYC Club members
